New York City is a shopping mecca. No matter your style, New York City has something for everyone. And if you want to explore your personal style, well, you have come to the right city to do just that. New York City, of course, has all of the popular clothing chains, but consider checking out some stores that you won’t be able to find elsewhere. Here are a couple of favorites clothing store options for men.

1. Zumiez


Founded originally in 1978 in Seattle, Zumiez caters to both men and women. What you will find in this store is clothes representing the skate and snow industries. If you’re a skater or into snow activities such as snowboarding or downhill, you will love the edgy clothes and the wide variety of brands.

2. Mishka

Looking for unique and colorful additions to your wardrobe? Is streetwear your style? Then it sounds like Mishka might be just the spot for you. Mishka was established in 2003 in New York City. Their designs are categorized as playful, bright, and different as their most known design is of an eyeball. Worth the trip!

3. Brooklyn Industries

Brooklyn Industries

Whether you are looking for backpacks, sweaters, tees, or beanies, Brooklyn Industries has got you covered. The style for this store is still hip but toned down compared to Mishka. If you’re looking for good quality clothing, “Brooklyn made” clothes with an edge, head on over to Brooklyn Industries to check out the goods.

4. Rag and Bone

Looking for something a little bit more modern and sleek? Rag and Bone offer stylish clothing for both men and women and the store itself was established in New York City, back in 2002. Rag and Bone distinguishes itself by combining British heritage with modern design, meaning you’re sure to end up with some outfits that people back home do not have. 

5. Only NY

Only NY

If you’re really looking for one of a kind clothing items to show off to your friends back home, Only NY sells limited-edition streetwear & accessories. Only NY is an independent brand and you’ll find the store located in the Lower East Side. The store itself say they draw inspiration from the city, nature, fishing, skateboarding, graffiti, sports, and art & photography. The store was established in 2006. 

6. Fresthetic

This clothing store Freshtetic has been fresh since 2007, as they say, themselves. The store is another store open for both men and women, and it is another streetwear and accessories store. Head over to Williamsburg for some snapbacks, backpacks, and super fresh socks. Fresthetic even have a collection of exclusive vinyl figures for those interested in that!
